Influence of planets on Individuals for April 2013
Date Posted: March 31, 2013
 

    Although itís very difficult to predict the influence of planets on a given individual without referring to his or her birth chart the following is intended only as a general guideline.  For confirmation, however, you must refer to your birth chart. Based on the assessment of planetary strengths or weaknesses in your birth chart, placement of planets in your current progressive regular and ninefold charts and the current operating planetary cycles, the following may or may not be applicable.  

Pluto-Jupiter quincunx (March 22 - April 3)

This is an important planetary event for people who deal with religion, religious and academic institutes. This quincunx could become responsible for a unique stalemate in the field of religion as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power to oppose and eventually transform religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. 

In your birth chart if Jupiter and Pluto are either in quincunx or opposition, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are perhaps standing on the thresh-hold of a new era that's about to begin in your life. Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new and a very different experience in that particular field. Be ready to accept this new settings with new challenges as well as the rewards that come with them.

On a collective level, religious and academic and to some extent social fields are very likely to see changes coming in their respective fields.

Uranus-Rahu ninefold opposition (and Uranus/Ketu conjunction)  (April 1-5)

If in your birth chart Uranus is in the direct opposition with the lunar node Rahu, and if any one of these two planets are influencing you now via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in your professional and financial areas during this period. Staying low key is certainly the way to go.  This opposition can become dangerous, and ruin your plans and bring about the unexpected disaster in every which way.  In short, during this period you have been tested. If you have very strong and positively placed lunar nodes and Uranus in your birth chart, then perhaps you need not worry.

On a collective level, the United States, and in particular, the Republic Party and republicans are likely to run into some very difficult period. Also, USA and China may go through a crisis situation during this period.

Mars-Rahu quincunx (April 3-5)

During this period Mars quincunxes Rahu.  Typically Mar's quincunx with a lunar node is very unfavorable and unfortunate situation in general.  If you have such a quincunx or opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these planets influencing you through your current progressive cycle then you need be very careful about the matters indicated by the respective houses in your birth chart.  Probably the best thing to do is to lay low key, not make any new commitment and avoid taking any sort of new risk.  

On the world scene, during this period both natural and man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives, and perhaps a demise of an international level political leader are likely.

Mars-Saturn Opposition (April 29-30)

Mars-Saturn opposition, for no apparent reason, changes a perfectly normal and healthy situation in to the one with a severe tension and friction. If you have such opposition in your birth chart, and if you have any one of these planets influencing you through the current progressive cycles, then you certainly need to be on guard. Simply lay back and do nothing.  If you must involve in an unwanted situation, be extra careful and try to minimize the damage. Experiences like fire burns, rape, accidents, loss of precious things, and monetary disasters are real possibilities.

On the world scene, a short term but very intensive friction between India and Pakistan is very likely. Terrorism and violence, especially in Middle East will be on rise. Outbreak of an undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made calamities are real possibilities.

Uranus-Saturn quincunx (April 4 - 19)

The Saturn-Uranus quincunx transit is very undesirable for you if you have such quincunx or square in your birth chart. In addition, if the planet Uranus or Saturn is affecting your life via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in the areas which are affected by the houses of your natal chart in which these planets reside. You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period.  Such quincunx can make things very miserable and difficult for you. Staying low key is certainly the way to go.  Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin till this period is passed. 

On a collective level, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising among them. 

Pluto-Rahu ninefold trine (and Pluto-Ketu sextile) (April 6-17)

If through your current progressive chart influence of either Pluto or lunar node is active and if Pluto is favorably positioned with respect to lunar nodes in your natal chart expect a very favorable time. Such positive events will be related to the affairs signified by the houses these planets occupy or aspect. For example, if the seventh house is involved, expect a new and positive development in relationship area, or business partnership, or success in capturing the audience if you deal with masses. If eleventh house is involved it may financially prove to be a very rewarding period. 

On a collective level, this is a good period for economy. This period is also good for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.

Uranus-Saturn ninefold square (April 11-15)

Saturn-Uranus ninefold square is unfavorable for you if you have such a square or opposition in your birth chart. In addition, if the planet Uranus or Saturn is affecting your life via your current progressive chart, then you might want to consider taking extra precautions in the areas which are affected by these planets as shown in your natal chart.  You should avoid taking any kind of risk at any cost during this period.  Such square or opposition can make things so miserable and difficult for you that most likely you are not going to forget them in your entire life. Staying low key is certainly the way to go.  Avoid any new ventures and postpone the matters that you want to begin till this period is passed. 

On a collective level, the United States of America, Russia or China may experience a social or political turmoil at home as well as tensions rising between them. 

Neptune-Rahu ninefold trine (Neptune-Ketu ninefold sextile) (April 12-20)

Neptune-Rahu ninefold trine is going to be very auspicious and favorable for those who have these planets favorably placed in their natal charts.  Expect monetary as well as power gains, promotions and improved prestige in professional and social fields.  The ideas that you always wanted to pursue but somehow could never get started....now is the time to follow that dream. You will distinctly notice and feel the positive energy flowing through you during this period.  It's time to jump in and enjoy this period.

On a collective level, religious activities all around the world are likely to expand with new vigor and energy, conservatives will have upper hand over the liberals, China and Russia are likely to see positive developments occurring in the social and economical fields.

Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine (April 13 - May 6)

On individual level, if in your birth chart Pluto is in sextile with Neptune or Pluto-Neptune form a ninefold trine, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your life via your current progressive chart, then you are very likely to be positively affected by this trine.  Depending on the houses these planets occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a positive experience in that particular field. Enjoy this experience!

At a collective level, the Pluto-Neptune ninefold trine is positive in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia and to some extent for China. Also, on technological front, expect some positive breakthroughs in medical, high technology and biotechnology fields. 

Neptune-Jupiter ninefold opposition (April 15-18)

Both Jupiter and Neptune are considered as auspicious planets. While Jupiter deals with outward and material things Neptune's influence on us is very abstract and subtle. For those who have such opposition in their birth charts, and if they have any one of these planets influencing them through the current progressive cycle are certainly going to experience a transformation (irreversible change) of their beliefs and moral values that they have been attached to. It's time for marching ahead with a quantum step in the process of self discovery (or evolution). Embrace this period with total openness and vulnerability. It's the time of rejuvenation with a positive force in your life. Enjoy!

On the world scene, world religions are likely to be challenged with earthshaking ideas that they must attend to. Those religious leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our religious world to a new level. Others are going to fade away with time. 

Pluto-Saturn ninefold quincunx (April 24 - May 3)

For those who have quincunx, square, or opposition of Pluto and Saturn in their birth charts, and for those whose current planetary operating cycle is influenced by either of these planets are likely to experience a severe setback or turmoil in their lives.  Such quincunx can become a very strong force to destroy the current setting of your lifestyle due to misfortune or things beyond your control and transform it to a totally new life setting which may or may not be desirable depending on the strength and positive influence of these planets in the natal chart. In any event it's going to be a irreversible event.

On a collective level, expect another outbreak of violence and terrorist activities in Middle-East, a good possibility of natural as well as man-made calamities, and to some extent, war-like climate in some part of the world. Tension between Israelis and Palestinians will remain unabated. Some of the east-European countries, Russia, and China may experience political as well as social turmoil.

Rahu-Jupiter quincunx (April 25 - May 2)

Jupiter-Rahu quincunx is going to be very unfavorable for those who have such quincunx in their natal charts.  Insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of these squares.  If you have such quincunx in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you need to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making any new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure to yourself, and unhappy with family.. Well, that's how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!

On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people happy. 

Partial Lunar Eclipse (April 25)

A partial lunar eclipse occurs on April 25 during the hours of 19:30 to 20:30 GMT. It's not a strong eclipse, and it will be visible in Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.   Since it's a weaker type I don't expect it to influence the world events in significantly negative way. 

Rahu-Jupiter (and Ketu-Jupiter) ninefold square(s) (April 29-30)

Jupiter-Rahu (and Ketu) ninefold squares are going to be very unfavorable for those who have such squares in their natal charts.  Insecure feeling, loss of direction in life, general unhappiness, difficulty in keeping the faith in God are some of the symptoms of these squares.  If you have such squares in your birth chart, and if any one of these planets is presently influencing you through the current progressive cycle then you need to look at the things with a different attitude. The best thing to do is to stay the course of present action without making any new commitment. Remember the time when you felt the life is not fair and not worth living, very unsure to yourself, and unhappy with family.. Well, that's how you going to feel this time. Keep your faith strong!

On a collective level, religions around the world will find difficulty in carrying out their activities and in general, keeping people happy. Loss of a well known religious figurehead is likely.
